Delaware Runaways, 1720-1783 Delaware Runaways, 1720-1783
WPGS 00113  Compiled by Joseph Lee Boyle | It is estimated that 350,000 to 500,000 indentured servants were imported to the American colonies through 1775. The Chesapeake region, which includes Delaware, received the highest number of servants, followed by Pennsylvania. Although by the start of the 18th century the importation of black slaves increased dramatically in the Chesapeake and southern colonies, white bound labor—both voluntary indentures and convict laborers—remained significant until the American Revolution. On the other hand, in the decade before the American Revolution, an estimated 20-25 percent of the Delaware Colony's population was enslaved. The 1790 U.S. census demonstrates that 70 percent of the state's black population were slaves, and slaves were 15 percent of the state's total population of 59,096 people. | 2014 | Paperback | 404 pages

Early African American Deaths in The Pittsburgh Courier, Book One NewEarly African American Deaths in The Pittsburgh Courier, Book One
WPGS  00104 Compiler: Marlene Garrett Bransom.  This book is a compilation of deaths and obituaries that appeared throughout the Pittsburgh Courier community columns and headlines from March 25, 1911, to December 27, 1912. These deaths represent individuals who lived in the small towns of southwestern Pennsylvania such as Beaver Falls, Belle Vernon, Braddock, Brownsville, Canonsburg, Connellsville, Charleroi, Erie, Greensburg, Homestead, Elizabeth, McKeesport, Monessen, Monongahela, Oil City, Scottdale, Sharon, Sewickley, Uniontown, Washington, and Waynesburg, as well as Pittsburgh; in eastern Ohio, the towns of Akron, Cadiz, Dayton, East Liverpool, Salem, Smithfield, Warren, Wilberforce, Youngstown and Zanesville; in West Virginia, the towns of Huntington and Wheeling. Other towns across the state of Pennsylvania such as Altoona, Harrisburg and Williamsport are also represented as well as Buffalo and Flushing, New York. Many of these deaths are just one line long; however, that one line often contains the name of the dead person, their parent’s name and where and when the deceased died. Many of the deaths that appear in this book are much more detailed describing when and where the deceased was born when they came to a certain area, how long they lived there, whether or not they were a slave, the plantation they came from, and who enslaved them.

This invaluable genealogical data, most likely, is only found in The Pittsburgh Courier. Many of these early settlers were remarkable citizens who established the first churches, schools, and social clubs. They were professional and nonprofessional, skilled and unskilled. They were of all classes and represented a variety of religious affiliations. The beginning of the book contains a listing of all the deaths that are featured in the book and concludes with an every-name index at the end of the book. | 2011 | Paperback | 206 pages

Evidence Explained: Citing History Sources from Artifacts to Cyberspace NewEvidence Explained: Citing History Sources from Artifacts to Cyberspace
WPGS 00020 Evidence Explained is the definitive guide to the citation and analysis of historical sources. It begins with a simple question: Why do we invest so much of our energy into the citation of sources? Followed by the intriguing answer: Because all sources are not created equal. As a citation guide, Evidence Explained is built on this simple question and answer. According to the author, there are no historical resources we can trust at face value. Records simply offer evidence, and their assertions may or may not be true. To decide what actually happened, we must understand those records. To analyze that evidence and judge what to believe, we also need particular facts about those records. Elizabeth Shown Mills.  Genealogical Pub Co (2007)

Family Tree (A). The history of our family with illustrations by Norman Rockwell NewFamily Tree (A). The history of our family with illustrations by Norman Rockwell
WPGS 00123  The joys of genealogy: An introduction. A pirate on your family tree? A duke or an earl? It's not likely nor is it likely that you will prove yourself heir to a fortune or gain an impressive coat of arms. The unknown-to-you ancestors that you discover when you become an amateur genealogist are almost certain to be farmers, small businessmen or craftsmen who lived and died in relative obscurity, either in the eastern U.S. or, if you go back further, in Europe. That's because most of the men and women who settled this continent were ordinary hard-working people, poor in purse but well endowed with energy and ambition. (Few pirates settled down to produce sons and daughters; few dukes and earls left the comforts of their ancestral estates to establish new homes in the American wilderness.) Why bother, then, to find out who those ancestors were? You will understand, once you begin family-tree-climbing. | 1981 | 127 Pages | Hard Cover; showing wear but inside pages are like new.

WPGS 00119  By Craig R. Scott, CG, FUGA.  For as long as the author can remember, he has had an interest in the French and Indian War. A decade ago, he purchased a set of the appropriate volumes of the Pennsylvania Archives and began an intermittent journey of research and discovery.

Entries are arranged alphabetically by surname and typically include: given name, date of enlistment and company or regiment. The amount of additional information varies and may include any combination of the following: age, birthplace, occupation, rank, where stationed, and/or original sources documents, such as account book, list of recruits, muster list or return. Individual entries have been combined with others where there was sufficient information. | 2015 | 287 pages | Paperback | Great condition.
